Challenge Reminder: CAS Christmas Card
by Nadine Carlier

Joy Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier

Hello, Nadine here again today with a reminder to enter in the Merry & Bright December challenge! We are looking for projects that make the holidays your favorite time of year. For me, it is the "Joy" of the season so I made a CAS Joy Christmas card. Hope it inspires you to give it a try.

Joy Card with Poppystamps by Nadine Carlier 1

I used the Seed Snowflake Joy Craft Die for the main focal point on my card.

I then used the Seed Snowflake Outline Die as an accent behind the letters.  The Tidings Of Joy Clear Stamp set works perfectly with Seed Snowflake Joy Die to create the sentiment for my card.

The rules are simple and you could win a gift card to the Poppystamps store!! For all the details click HERE!  I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!

See you next time!

Hello, Nadine here today! Have you entered the Poppystamps Happy Harvest challenge yet this month? It's not too late, you still have until Nov. 28th to enter.
For my inspiration for the challenge, I made an off the edge Autumn shaker card.

Fall Shaker Card by Nadine Carlier 3

The Give Thanks Brushed die was the perfect sentiment for this card, topped off with some Rinea Foiled Paper.

I used the Whittle Maple Leaf and Whittle Oak Leaf dies for shaker windows and created a water brush effect using some ink and metallic color spray for the background.

Magic Pumpkin

Hello Everyone!

Have you seen this month's October challenge? It's Falling Leaves and Scary Things, and we love the spooky creations coming our way for this scary challenge! You've got all month to show us your spookiest creation using at least one Poppystamps product, and link it up to our challenge page! What will you create?

IMG_5602-wm

I made a floating Magic Pumpkin to rise out of the pumpkin patch! I used alcohol ink and YUPO paper against a stamped distress ink galaxy background to create my spooky scene. 

IMG_5594-wm

Creating a background with alcohol ink on YUPO paper is easy and fun! The best part is, it is almost impossible to screw up! That's right, no matter how you smear and blend the colors on the paper, it will look vibrant and beautiful. For the pumpkin and the moon in the Bat Ring, I stuck to oranges and yellows. The tiny leaves from Leafy Breeze were also made with alcohol and YUPO, cut from tiny scraps left over from another project. I save every little bit of my YUPO scraps too! They make beautiful leaves, feathers, tiny holiday bulbs, even stars!

IMG_5611-wm

Now it's your turn to create something a little bit spooky or a little bit fun! Link up your projects to our Challenge page and your project could be randomly selected as our October winner!

Thanks for joining us today! While you are here, take a look at our Poppystamps Holiday Blog Blitz, which began on October 11th. Leave a comment on every post that offers a prize you'd like to win!

Challenge Reminder Halloween Treats
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0011

Hello, my Poppy friends! Nancy here, with a reminder that Poppy has a challenge going on, with a chance for you to win a gc to the Poppystamps store!

I made a trio of tagged candy bags for the grandkids, and used the Halloween Costume Cats stamp and die set.

DSC_0016

All 3 tags were die cut from black cardstock, decorated, with a bright contrasting tag behind. 

Candy Bag 1 features the sweet pair of kittens in a pumpkin.

DSC_0011

Time to get out the stash of Halloween themed ribbon and washi and enjoy decorating cards and tags.

The tag is connected to my bag of treats with a clothespin thats been 'washied' with trick or treat tape. 3 ribbons form my simple junk bow.

DSC_0012

My treat bags are simple acetate bags that show off the contents.

DSC_0034

I did my tags and bags assembly line, cutting and coloring everything first, then assembling my cats on the black tags cut with Poppy's Leafy wreath die. Don't you love the colorful window of leaves?

DSC_0031

Leaves and Scary things is your challenge. Can't wait to see what you create! Play all month!

Happy happy Fall, and Happy Halloween!

Time Out Challenges
byJeanne Jachna

Pumpkin-Floral-Four

Do you love to play challenges?  We're sponsoring the Time Out Challenges #118.  That means if you play along there you could win a $20 gift certificate from Poppystamps.  You can double your chances of winning by playing along in our monthly challenge too because this month Anything Goes!  (You can find the current Poppystamps monthly challenge by clicking on the badge in the right column of this blog. 

Here's the Time Out Challenge this week:

45cd8e5fc9178106fbfb33f946da66e1

I started by cutting a Harvest Pumpkin die from orange card stock.  I added some distress ink around the bottom of the pumpkin to add some dimension.  Next I selected a Double Stitch Rectangle Frame that was large enough to frame the pumpkin base.

Pumpkin-Floral-Three

I inked up the negative inside of the Double Stitch Rectangle Frame with Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade and splattered it with  Carved Pumpkin.   I colored up a second piece of card stock with Carved Pumpkin to use as a matt behind the frame.

Pumpkin-Floral-Three

I stamped Peony Stems florals with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Copic Markers.  I arranged the florals on a sheet of clear plastic to decide how they would be arranged before I adhered them in place.

Pumpkin-Floral-Three
I added a few extra leaves and a flower from a now retired stamp set to accent the pumpkin vase.

Pumpkin-Floral-Three

A simple sentiment is tucked in the upper corner of the frame.

I hope you find some time to play along at The Time Out Challenges Blog this week!
